    "The View": Week of 6/17/2019

    I think it's a cooking competition show with families using their family recipes.

    Just a correction on my post above: The child didn't take the whole creche--just the baby Jesus.

    After Joy introduced the clip of the high school valedictorian bashing some of the staff in her school, this caught my ear: Joy: Have you ever dreamed of doing something like that? Ana: Yeah, I'm having that dream now. Joy: Who do you wanna tell off, Ana? Ana: You don't wanna go there. It was all done in a lighthearted manner, but I wonder if it was a dig at Meghan. Even if it wasn't, I'll bet Meghan took it as a dig. 😄

    The Andy Griffith Show

    And later, Alice's boyfriend Sam the butcher on The Brady Bunch, and Barney Hefner on All in the Family, to name a couple off the top of my head. 🙂

    Kate Plus Date

    My friend and I once had a discussion about Mady's behavior when she was little. I went on and on about how she was hell on wheels and I'd go nuts if she were my child, and my friend said, "Oh, poor Mady. You try growing up in a house full of multiples. Of course she's acting out only to get attention. I feel for her." And I would always respond, "Then how come Cara is not like that." Yeah, I agree she was born that way. I read a blind item on some site that was obviously about Kate. I usually take these things with a grain of salt, but it sounded true. It said she was still with the bodyguard boyfriend as she was filming the show and he was purposely kept away from any filming or publicity photos, etc. so that she would be seen as a single woman.

    I don't think the twins are bratty at all. I think they're cute and funny. I'm impressed with all three of the older boys. Not only do they not show any envy or resentment of their little brothers and sisters, they seem to genuinely love them and are proud of them.

    Actually, Dragnet had one of my favorite ever Christmas episodes (along with The Twilight Zone's Art Carney episode and The Andy Griffith Show with the crotchety old man Ben who kept trying to get arrested). The Dragnet episode was about a creche that was stolen from a church. Joe Friday spent the episode looking for it and at the very end, as he's in the church, along comes a little boy pulling a wagon with the creche in it. He had the creche all that time. He had made a promise that if he got a red wagon for Christmas, he would give the baby Jesus a ride in it. I get a lump in my throat just thinking about that episode.

    I remember that so well. I think it was a coupon, though, as opposed to a gift card. It was something like $2.50.

    I don't think people yell at Meghan when she walks out her door (if that's even true) because she's a Republican--I think it's because she's a terrible person. On a shallow note, one of her hair extensions is a different color than the others. I don't know if it's the light, but one is orangey.

    I always think, "What if Courtney trips and breaks her ankle?" She and Eric are barely keeping their heads above water while being healthy. I can't imagine how it would be with an injury or illness. Where are all those church people that showed up to volunteer for shift work when the babies came home from the hospital? She needs help now more than she did then. I also wondered about adding on to the house. I agree with what was said above that the babies won't remember a trip to buy the Christmas tree and all that, but I'm thinking, in addition to Courtney wanting it, the producer may have prodded them to make it a big family event for the camera.

    Based on the responses Meghan got when she tweeted about Pride Day, I'm making a note to check the Facebook responses on this. Should be interesting.

    Speaking of Joy's psychodrama sessions, I noticed that Joy described it as therapy that helps you deal with people who are mean to you.

    I noticed when Elizabeth Moss mentioned Joy's sunglasses and Joy said something like, "People don't want to see my face," Meghan responded a little too quickly and loudly (which made it look insincere) that no, she doesn't feel that way about Joy. Everyone else at the table just smiled at Joy's joke and didn't make it about themselves. Even if Meghan really meant it sincerely, it came off as fake.

    I agree today was refreshing without Meghan although I very much missed Joy. I'm concerned that Whoopi lumped the two of them together in her "down for the count" excuse. If she had said, "Joy took the day off and Meghan's down for the count," I'd feel a little better, but as much as I hope they're trying new combinations to get rid of Meghan, I hope that doesn't mean they're thinking about getting rid of Joy, too. I can't imagine they'd do that since they went to all the trouble of bringing her back, but you never know. It's a puzzlement.😕
